Something Special

I am so behind on blogging this session, but seriously this family made it really hard to narrow them down, so I hold them to blame. 😉

Meet Brian, Heather, and their I-Almost-Tried-To-Kidnap-Him-That’s-How-Cute-He-Is son, Shea. I knew this was going to be a fun session when right out of the car, Shea walked up to me, very closely (he’s a close talker), looked me straight in the eye and said …

Well, I can’t remember exactly what he said but it was adorable and two-year old like and then … he hugged me.

Right out of the car. I wanted to melt.

I can’t write too much about this family without sounding very Hallmark. Because everything loving, and proud, and grateful, and sweet, and funny, and giggly – that’s them. You could literally FEEL how much they all love one another, I felt so lucky to be part of their shoot. They really do have something special.

Just a boatload few from our time together …

Oh my smoochable:

It’s mutual. And one of my favorite parts of the session, was turning around after this shot, and seeing Dad watching and beaming from ear to ear. Sorry, Brian, if I blew your cover, but it was very sweet. 😉

And he loves his Daddy.

But not as much as I loved getting to meet and photograph all of them.
